Ravens 48, Buccaneers 17

October 12th, 2014


This one’s on you, Lovie Smith.

You emphatically told media last week that your current Buccaneers are a better team than the last time they were in town for a home game back in September.

You were so wrong.

Lovie’s beloved Bucs didn’t show up today. Spin today’s game however you wish, Tampa Bay is not responding to its head coach.

It’s a problem.

No, Joe’s not putting Lovie on the proverbial hot seat, but the Bucs are in trouble. Joe’s seen quit in teams before, and the Bucs sure had that feel about them today.

How does this happen at home? How??

The failures are in all phases of the game. There were even two drops (Mike Evans followed by Vincent Jackson) on the Bucs’ final drive.

Sad, sad times.

Stick with Joe all through the day for much more on todays’ epic debacle.

    Glennon’s TB career stats… 3280 yds 24 tds and 11 ints

    Mike Glennon is NOT the problem.

    But the defense does stink. ………………..

  2. bucrightoff Says:

    It’s the worst this team has looked in probably 20 years at least. It’s comical how much worse this team got just by switching coaches and changing a few players. Banking that Pittsburgh win was key cause 2-14 might be the ceiling on the season.

  3. TAC Says:

    Sure did look like they quit. They didn’t show any fire until Steve Smith broke their spork in their face.

  4. Bucs Fan #237 Says:

    He threw for 314 yds today with 2 TDs and 1 int.

    The defense stinks.

  5. Pruritus Ani Says:

    Quit is an accurate description.. He should be on the hot seat.

  6. sam Says:

    This team is garbage absolute trash. I think its time they think about pulling the plug on the lovie smith experiment. And all along we thought Greg Schiano was the problem. SMDH

  7. NJBucsFan Says:

    Lovie Smith is overrated and his system is antiquated. Unfortunately, we are stuck with his poor coaching for another 3-4 yrs. I want him out now!

  8. IdahoBucsfan Says:

    What would our record be today had we Kept Schiano? How many blowouts did HE have as the commander?

  9. The South Floridian Buc Says:

    Fire Lovie and Leslie!!!

  10. WalkdaPlank Says:

    It was all Glennon’s fault. Had we had a better QB out there, the O-line would’ve blocked better, the receivers would have gotten open more and caught better, the RB’s would’ve gotten more yards, and the defense would’ve given up fewer points.

    Yup, this is all on that Napoleon Dynamite, giraffe-looking QB of ours.

  11. Arealbucsfan Says:

    Doesnt matter if YOU put in the hot seat or not Joe. He’s already in it

  12. FR Says:

    I was close 46-10

  13. theodore Says:

    MG8 is awesome once the game enters garbage time in the 2nd qtr.

  14. Patrick Says:

    Mike Glennon doesn’t need to be Peyton Manning or Drew Brees. He’s good enough. No matter who our QB is, we’re not going to win many games if our defense is giving up 40 points a game.

    “Glennon’s TB career stats… 3280 yds 24 tds and 11 ints

    the stats are whack and you know it. getting tons of yards and completions in scrub time does not equate to a good qb….doh.

    glennon is not a real, starting qb! he is a pinocchio qb who looks like a real qb from afar. and some fools buy the mirage.

  16. TAC Says:

    LOL, Glennon was rag dolled all day, but he has to learn to get rid of the ball under duress. Still hasn’t learned that.

    Why did he take a sack running out of bounds again? Those type of plays will lose games in the future.

    Glennon is not the real problem here, but he isn’t the absolute future yet either. Better invest some real money in the oline if he stays for a real run to the playoffs.

  17. Touch_Down_Tampa_Bay Says:


    At least we won’t loose next week…

  18. FR Says:

    Again a good head coach doesn’t sit out a season. Lovie and his coaching staff suck.

  19. knucknbuc Says:

    Can’t believe ppl are acting like Glennon was good whole team stunk. Just because he threw some yards in garbage time doesn’t mean he had a good game.

  20. lurker Says:

    the whole team was pisspoor again: defense, offensive line, special teams, AND qb!

    where is the coaching and accountability?

  21. Patrick Says:

    Tampa Bay fans always think that we’ll magically find our QB in the first round of the draft.

    Get over it; it’ll never happen.

  22. lightningbuc Says:


  23. AnotherJ Says:

    Mike Glennon isn’t the problem. The offensive line, and terrible defensive, and offensive coordinator are holding this team back.
    Love needs to save face admit he was wrong, and fire Frazier, and Arroyo.

  24. stratobuc Says:

    This is pathetic. Raider-like futility, and no hope going forward. Something needs to change around here.

  25. Bill Says:

    I think it’s time to make some changes……starting with ownership. Apparently the Glazers are incapable of learning from past mistakes, namely hiring a head coach and giving him way too much power. What they need to do is hire a proven GM and let him pick the coach. If I was the owner, I’d back a Brinx truck up to Bill Polian’s house and give him one directive: do whatever it takes to build a dynasty. Then I’d sit back and watch.

  26. Arealbucsfan Says:

    Time to pull the plug. Lovie hasnt learned squat on that year off. He’s stuck in the old times. He should never be a HC again in this league

  27. Jack Says:

    The players and the coaches should be embarrassed and ashamed of themselves. It is their fault that there were more raven’s fans then bucs fan today. Bucs fans are tired of shelling out their hard earned money just to watch crap. But I’m sure the players and the coaches will be quick to cash that weekly game check though and this go is horrible. Where are the big free agent they signed.

    This team plainly sucks.

  28. The South Floridian Buc Says:

    Why can’t Lovie admit he is wrong, No he’s going g to keep making excuses, even though Arroyo is incompetent and the Tampa 2 doesn’t work anymore

  29. ryan Says:

    another game where Glennon was nowhere to be found in the first half. The Mob sure liked getting on McCown for not coming out for the first 3 quarters yet I’m sure the excuses will be flowing tonight.

    Also, it is funny that when Atlanta was drubbing the Bucs in the first half a few weeks ago, Joe was questioning McCown’s leadership. Well what about today’s drubbing?

  30. lurker Says:

    “Tampa Bay fans always think that we’ll magically find our QB in the first round of the draft.

    Get over it; it’ll never happen.”

    yeah, so lets not improve at the position and get a real qb…smh
    and why will it never happen? other teams have done it.

  31. Arealbucsfan Says:

    Time to hire an offensive minded coach. Ive been sayin darrell bevell since last year. We need ti clean house.

  32. BucFan20 Says:

    I don’t want to hear anymore from Mr Brooks and his it takes time crap. People are wide open week after week. No pressure week after week. It is time to put it on your good friend where it belongs. No more excuses.

  33. CAN'T FIX IT Says:


  34. Arealbucsfan Says:

    2 blow outs in the first half of the seaaon is jus ridiculous.

  35. Buccfan37 Says:

    The Bucs were flat as a puddle, I have to call it on Lovie not having the team ready in any capacity. They were’nt going to beat anybody with this effort. This team is going backwards and I don’t see them turning it around anytime soon. A pathetic miserable day for Bucs fans.

  36. tmaxcon Says:

    Lovie is a joke. Gleenon is a career backup and that O-Line could not block pop Warner players.

    make all the excuses you people want about 8 but the only stat that matters is wins and he does not win regardless of the circumstances. the team is garbage. lovie must go back to the basement. OUT OF TOUCH!

    If I was GMC I’d run to a team with a commitment to win. he deserves to win.

  37. lightningbuc Says:

    Hilarious that our defense gives up 28 points in the 1st quarter, and people are worried about Glennon.

  38. WalkdaPlank Says:

    You’re right, lurker, Marcus Mariota is only missing piece to this SB-caliber team.

  39. BoJim Says:

    Didn’t see Glennon giving up. Just sayin.

  40. ryan Says:

    almost as hilarious as the offense having about 100 yards of offense in the first half and people are only worried about the defense.

  41. WalkdaPlank Says:


    It’s a team game. And this team sucks.

  42. lurker Says:

    mariota sucks!

    so how long do we wait to get a real qb? it is a qb-driven league and we are stuck in neutral. we have thrown tons of money and trades and draft picks at every other position except qb!

  43. dmatt Says:

    I thought Lovie learned from past mistakes. Y do we wait late n the game to run the no huddle offense. Our defense just don’t have what it takes to stop the average offense. No sacks n pressure result to long runs, easy passes, n five tds. VJ continue to drop passes n MEvans seems to give up on certain plays. DMartin is not the key at rb. Let’s b honest we have no pass rush n no running game n our corners suck. Bad coaching has contributed to each of our loss.

  44. WalkdaPlank Says:


    Yeah, I know. This class sucks. Almost makes me wish we had drafted Johnny. But I don’t think I would have been able to take Joe’s Mancrushing any longer. But Glennon > Mariota.

  45. buc4lyfe Says:

    Bucs Fan #237

    No no it’s the defenses fault we score 17 points in garbage time. The defense is garbage but seriously who didn’t know that by week two come on. OK defense gave up 28 points in the first half everyone knows that but I didn’t watch one single snap, tell me why Glennon only threw for 62 yards in the first half?

  46. lurker Says:

    “Yeah, I know. This class sucks.”

    and yet most posters here said this year’s draft is where the qb’s are at…lol
    i saw mariotta sucking last year. watched hundley sucking this year. unsure of winston. who else is coming out?

    i know qb alone won’t fix this team, not the way lovie keeps making personnel decisions. hell, where is the coaching?

  47. lurker Says:

    it is funny/sad how we are arguing/in-fighting about which part of this craptastic team is worse…smdh the bucs brought us to this level!

  48. Tampa2ali Says:


  49. BucFan20 Says:

    Gruden is the one laughing the hardest!!

  50. billy buckaroo Says:

    Two coaches better be addressed this week immediately
    Leslie Frasier-defense
    George Warhop-Offense line
    Lovie can no longer brush off such terrible schemes by both of these guys.

  51. tweezydakidd Says:

    I am sick of this atrocious piss poor team!!

  52. tweezydakidd Says:

    totally agree Billy

  53. SteveK Says:


    I didn’t watch live either. After watching the DVR, Glennon should have gotten rid of 3-4 balls while dropped back, the other times he had no time and was being mugged.

    PassD and OLine were TERRIBLE.

  54. Destinjohnny Says:

    Been saying it we are going to have to draft our way out of this mess. Sorta miss Schinno.

  55. frog Says:

    Lovey and Frazer has to go. Bet Glazers have Lovey in office and on the carpet by 8[30 am.

  56. adama Says:

    Thank God we fired Gruden
